We combined jelly roll fabrics with a solid colored background. You will have a selection of fabrics to choose from. You will work to complete your quilt top during the retreat. Also, there will be a special trunk show of a quilt artist to inspire you. There are fun prizes for all participants during the retreat. Again this year you will have the opportunity to "shop" a special selection of fabrics and vintage finds. This is a fun weekend to meet new friends, do some quilting and just get away from your normal distraction. You will also be treated to good food. Meals - Friday night - light hors d'oeuvres, Saturday - breakfast, lunch and dinner, and Sunday; breakfast and lunch. We will also take time to pause for Gratitude. Total cost of retreat is $225. Look for Early Bird and double enrollment discounting. Look for information sheet as needed.
